**2.4 Solve Multi-Step Equations**• You will solve multi-step equations. • How do you solve multi-step equations?**30**5x = 5 5 EXAMPLE 1 Solve an equation by combining like terms Solve 8x – 3x – 10 = 20. 8x – 3x – 10 = 20 Write original equation. 5x – 10 = 20 Combine like terms. 5x – 10 + 10= 20 + 10 Add 10 to each side. 5x = 30 Simplify. Divide each side by 5. x = 6 Simplify.**SOLUTION**When solving an equation, you may feel comfortable doing some steps mentally. Method 2 shows a solution where some steps are done mentally. EXAMPLE 2 Solve an equation using the distributive property Solve 7x +2(x + 6) = 39.**METHOD2**Do Some Steps Mentally = 9x 27 9 9 EXAMPLE 2 METHOD1 Show All Steps 7x + 2(x + 6) = 39 7x + 2(x + 6) = 39 7x + 2x + 12 = 39 7x + 2x + 12 = 39 9x + 12 = 39 9x + 12 = 39 9x + 12 – 12= 39 – 12 9x = 27 9x = 27 x = 3 x =3**SOLUTION**ANSWER In Step 2, the distributive property is used to simplify the left side of the equation. Because –4(x– 3) = –4x + 12, Step 2 should be 5x – 4x + 12 = 17. The correct answer is D.

Check your solution.**SUMMER CAMP**You are planning a scavenger hunt for 21 campers. You plan to have 5 teams. One camper from each team will be the recorder and the rest will be searchers. How many searchers will each team have? EXAMPLE 5 Write and solve an equation**SOLUTION**Let sbe the number of searchers on a team. Then 1 + s is the total number of campers on each team. EXAMPLE 5 Write and solve an equation**ANSWER**Because 4 searchers per team would require a total of 5(1 + 4) = 25 campers, 4 teams will have 3 searchers and 1 team will have 4 searchers. EXAMPLE 5 Write and solve an equation Write equation. 21 =5(1 + s) Distributive property 21 = 5 + 5s Subtract 5 from each side. 16 =5s 3.2 = s Divide each side by 5.**7.**WHAT IF? In Example 5, suppose you decide to use only 4 teams. How many searchers should there be on each team? ANSWER There will be 5 searchers on one team and 4 searchers on the other teams. EXAMPLE 5 for Example 5 Write and solve an equation GUIDED PRACTICE**ANSWER**2 ANSWER 11 ANSWER –4 Daily Homework Quiz Solve the equation. 1.8g–2+g=16 2.3b+2(b–4)=47 3. –6 + 4(2c+ 1) = –34**4.(x – 6) = 12**Joe drove 405 miles in 7 hours. He drove at a rate of 55 miles per hour during the first part of the trip and 60 miles per hour during the second part. How many hours did he drive at a rate of 55 miles per hour? 5. 2 3 ANSWER 3 h ANSWER 24 Daily Homework Quiz**You will solve multi-step equations.**• How do you solve multi-step equations? • To solve multi-step equations, first simplify one or both sides and then use inverse operations. • If a fraction is being multiplied by a quantity, use reciprocals to simplify instead of the distributive property. To solve a multi-step equation, first simplify and combine like terms. After simplifying, use inverse operations to isolate the variable.
